The Beautiful Torres Strait Islander, Aboriginal, Dutch, Australian Jazz singer from Cairns in Far North Queensland with the second of her 3 Rex singles from 1960.
This is a great cover of the Anita Bryant hit 'In My Little Corner Of The World' and doesn't exactly show the Jazz, Cabaret and Nightclub singer that made Wilma so famous overseas, touring with the likes of Duke Ellington and working with people like Liza Minelli and Barbra Streisand.
She never got the recognition she deserved in Australia and whilst many of us havn't heard of her she is in the Performers Hall Of Fame in New York and during the 1970's was a household name in America.
But for now, here's how she started off... in the dingy, dodgy and downright dangerous studios of Festival's Rex (or 'Wrecks' as it was referred to) studio's, Sydney 1960.
Great profile on ABC just now.
